    Its being sprouted a lot latley that the current three is Kennedy, Menzies and Watmough are the best back row manyl have ever had. I've not been around long enough to know but they would have to be 3 of the best I've seen in my life time. From you older blokes, are they all their cracked up to be or have we seen better?

    I'd think yes.

    It also answeres why the supporters aren't to confident when ALL are not playing. Some would suggest that one player (monas) should still be the key to the teams success, regardless. Quite strange really!

    The only obvious deficiancy of the current backrow is the lack of a ball playing forward.

    Im with C - they are a close second for my time. Kosef just tips the mid nineties ahead, that said you would have any of the 5 players mentioned in the team as one of the first picked. Given the age of beaver and BK they may not be around to see enough game time with a more mature watmough. I still think 2007 is not out of the question for those 2 (fingers crossed)

    Fair call, I make a call and it's a hijak. But others can make swipe at players in many forms and all is cool. Go figure.

    Back to the topic though if our current 3 make the aussie team it would be the best ever.

    Gartner, Kosef, Menzies . Did all these players play for Australia in any game at the same time?

    Kosef wins it for the mid nineties backrow

    Had he not had so many injuries, he would've gone down as the best Lock ever

    I agree Disco. I always debate with a Raiders fan about Kosef's potential, saying that had he gone on, Clyde wouldn't have been fit to clean his boots.
